The picture of an expecting Kansas City couple has become the talk of the Internet.

Like many couples, Laura and Aaron Morgan, hired a photographer to snap photos of the pair prior to their delivery date. But it’s what Aaron did during that photo shoot that has people talking.

“I probably did what most guys that have a beer belly would do — anybody that has a sense of humor, anyway,” Aaron said in an interview with WQAD.

In the picture posted to Facebook, Laura is in the forefront, embracing her growing belly like many pregnant women do. Behind her, Aaron is doing the same albeit with his self-professed beer belly.

Laura had no idea what Aaron was doing behind her until her photographer started laughing — uncontrollably.

“I was like, ‘What is going on?’” Laura said. “And when I turned around it was my husband doing silly poses.”

The picture has received nearly 100,000 likes and continues to receive comments on photographer Ashley Hempel’s Facebook page.
